Day 1 - Arrival in St. Louis, Drive to Sedalia

Morning arrivals in St. Louis (airport code STL) will be met by the Fit 4 Adventure van. Once everyone is accounted for, we’ll start our 3-hour drive to Sedalia, MO, where the two-wheeled tour begins. Our Welcome Dinner in Sedalia (included in trip) will give you a chance to get to know your guides and fellow riders. Our first night will be in rooms at the historic Hotel Bothwell, which opened in 1927 as a stately railway hotel and now caters to Katy Trail visitors and cyclists.  


Day 2 - Sedalia to Boonville, ending at the Pedaler's Jamboree (37 miles)

Our journey starts at the Katy Depot, a restored train depot from 1896 now serving as a Katy Trail State Park welcome center. The trail ahead is a well maintained crushed limestone surface, designated for pedestrians and cyclists only. It is mostly flat and mostly shaded. This first section meanders through woods and farmland, past ponds and prairies, winding through typical Midwest countryside before arriving in Boonville, our destination for the evening. 

Right off the trail, and in the heart of this quiet little town, we’ll come upon a scene you don’t expect and won’t forget: a crowded and rollicking live music, bike-camping, and food-truck festival called Pedaler’s Jamboree. We’ll spend the evening enjoying the festivities (and the food trucks) before retreating to our accommodation for the night- the historic Hotel Frederick.




Day 3 - Boonville to Jefferson City (51 miles)

Our longest day on-trail, but one filled with many things to see and do. This is the second day of Pedaler’s Jamboree- as we make our way towards the state capital, we’ll have opportunities to stop for some live music along the route. We’ll pass through a stone railroad tunnel built in 1892, visit a GIANT burr oak tree, pedal past BoatHenge and visit a laid-back pedaler/paddler riverbank “resort” called Cooper’s Landing. We’ll roll to a stop in Jefferson City by late afternoon and enjoy a group dinner near the state capital.



Day 4 - Jefferson City to Hermann (47 miles)

Leaving the capital behind, we’ll be rolling through hamlets and homesteads built by 19th Century German settlers, many of whom developed the local wine industry in the region.  Today, vineyards are common throughout the hillsides. For lunch, we’ll enjoy a river-side picnic along the route. The town of Hermann, in the heart of wine country, is our overnight destination- it’s filled with charming restaurants, tasting rooms, antique shops and historic inns.


Day 5 - Hermann to Augusta (37 miles)

The ride out of Hermann will start with a crossing over the Missouri River before connecting back to the Katy Trail. A new bridge here, featuring a protected bike lane, is just one example of how the state has worked to make the Katy Trail safer and more enjoyable for cyclists as the popularity of the route continues to grow. We’ll stop off along the way for a ‘Taco Tuesday’ lunch and continue on toward Augusta, another popular and historic river town.



Day 6 - Augusta to St. Charles (27 miles)

Watch the landscape morph from farmland to suburbia as we draw closer to the finish line.  The home stretch brings us back into historic St. Charles, just a few miles from where we started our journey five days earlier, at the St. Louis airport. To celebrate the journey, we will treat ourselves to a leisurely lunch in St. Charles, raising a toast to our adventure before heading to the airport for afternoon departures.



The Katy Trail far exceeded my expectations. Everything was so well organized; and we were in excellent hands with our local guides, Joe and Jenny. I loved everything about this trip from the great trail riding, the beautiful small towns, the delicious food, cozy accommodations, and great snacks and refreshments along the way. Our group was fabulous. We all got along great and had a lot of laughs. This was truly one of my best trips. Thank you to the team at Fit 4 Adventure. I would love to do this one again!

We just finished the inaugural Katy Trail ride. I had been wanting to do this for a long time and with Fit 4 Adventure it was better than anticipated. The guides, Joe and Jenny were awesome. The accommodations were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the old historic hotels. The rental bikes were very good as was the support. The trail was beautiful and very well maintained. As always with Fit 4 Adventure, the folks that you meet and the little extras really make the trip. We hope to do this again in the Fall with the color changes.

The Katy Trail trip was a first-class trip! Great way to see the world, and eat well along the way! Fit 4 Adventure did a very thorough job of planning and execution on this trip...all we had to do as guest was show up and pedal !!!

Just went on the maiden voyage of the Katy Trail Cycling Trip. Wonderful trip! The trail is beautiful, and the rental bikes were great. Joe and Jenny took good care of us, supplying plenty of water for hot days, plenty of snacks, and beer at the end of a hard days ride. I enjoyed the variety of communities, accommodations, and restaurants along the trail. Great trip with a fun group of people. I would definitely do this one again.

Thank you for an incredible trip on the Katy Trail! I loved the easy way that Nick and Kris guided the group- there was no rushing, strict schedules, etc., and they always had ap lan for managing riders of differing speeds. There was a perfect mix between provided dinners/lunches and those where we were on our own. The group size was also PERFECT! Great trip- you all at Fit 4 Adventure are truly a cut above!
